Mer­its of leav­ing EU just ig­nored

Solihull News - - LETTERS & EMAILS -

A RE­CENT poll by You Gov sug­gests that a ref­er­en­dum re- run would re­sult in a re­main re­sult. This is not at all sur­pris­ing when, since the ini­tial re­sult was an­nounced in June 2016, all of those who promised to hon­our the re­sult have done all that is in their power to re­verse the vote at ev­ery turn. If we had stood shoul­der- to- shoul­der then it could all have been sorted by now.

The Lon­don­cen­tric Europhile es­tab­lish­ment be­ing so sure of a re­main re­sult al­lowed the vote and were shook to the core, but they soon mo­bilised them­selves and from the days of the Gina Miller court case, projects fear 2& 3, even the man seen wav­ing EU flags on news bul­letins ( who’s pay­ing him?), to the re­cent clam­our for a “peo­ple’s vote”, on and on it has gone.

I can­not re­mem­ber a sin­gle TV pro­gramme dis­cussing the mer­its of leav­ing once in two years and, although they are man­i­fold, have been to­tally ig­nored.

As for the man who was the real ar­chi­tect of the vote, Nigel Farage, he has been largely side­lined by the pro EU TV sta­tions.

Be aware that should there be a re- run then the es­tab­lish­ment who were so com­pla­cent last time would in no way let it be a fair fight this time around.

The bal­lot pa­per would prob­a­bly of­fer two choices, “Re­main” or “Stay” in the Euro­pean Union. Terry Coates, Kings Nor­ton
